6:00 pm
earthquake, centered though on the hayward fault. it happened on the same day californians took part in an annual earthquake preparedness drill. the epicenter in berkeley at the clark kerr campus a few blocks from the main campus. this is a look at the cbs 5 seismograph. the u.s. geological survey says magnitude 4.0. we have team coverage on the bay area quake tonight. christin ayers is at the epicenter. >> reporter: we are at the campus. students here confirm that they did indeed feel that jolt and saw --felt a lot of shaking and rattling going on and it could be felt all over the bay area. my photographer and were a mile away from the epicenter and felt a jolt in our live truck and assumed we had been rear- ended until we heard about the 4.0 earthquake. it could be felt all the over the bay area and was enough to cause the usual slowdowns on bart and caltrain, as well. the quake actually also not only caused some of those
6:01 pm
slowdowns as usual but it also caused some bay area residents their get just a little jittery. >> looked up, saw shake, moving, things falling off the wall, i thought it was bigger than it was. it felt to me like a 6. >> i thought someone hit our car. i felt the jolt and i looked back and what the heck was is that that? i thought someone -- then we saw the birds scattering everywhere and stuff. >> i got pretty scared actually, felt things shake and it got more intense and i ran outside because i thought it could be quite huge. >> run to the doorway! just stand under the doorway because apparently that's what you're supposed to do. i never actually felt an earthquake before? so it was kind of cool actually. >> i'm scared! >> how unexpected it was but we got through it. >> awesome. >> reporter: interestingly,
6:02 pm
construction crews were working on some of the seismic upgrades at the cal memorial stadium when that happened. they tell us they felt some shaking but were able to get back to work. >> mark sayre has been talking to the experts at usgs. they are going to tell us why it was so widely felt, mark? >> reporter: and allen, we have also had some aftershocks worth mentioning a 1.8 at 90 in the afternoon 2.2 at 4:50 in the afternoon both in the east bay, felt in parts of san francisco and parts of the peninsula and experts here say more aftershocks are to be expected. >> bk is berkeley. so now it's very close in with just a sharp pulse. >> reporter: the doctor with the usgs says the epicenter of the quake was just south of the uc-berkeley campus at a depth of 6 miles. >> so it's down quite distance in terms of distance from the surface. however, it was felt widely throughout the san francisco bay area.
6:03 pm
>> reporter: residents from as far south as santa cruz as far north as santa rosa, and into the sacramento area reported feeling the quake. >> so this is a strike foot motion so the hayward fault is a right lateral so one side moves when you look across the fault moves to the right relative to if you're staying on the opposite side. that is the same type of fault as the san andreas fault. >> reporter: as to the question could this be a foreshock to the big one? dr. aguard says that's possible but probably unlikely. >> there's always a chance that this could be followed by a larger earthquake. but the chances of that happening decrease rapidly with time. >> reporter: depending where you were in the bay area you may have felt this quake differently. some people reported feeling just one sharp jolt. others reported feeling several jolts. scientists say that's entirely consistent with the way these waves propagate. they are called s waves and p waves traveling at different speeds so depending where you
6:04 pm
are relative to the epicenter of the quake, you may have felt it differently than someone you know in the next town over or five miles away, allen. they say, though, that they do believe that there are going to be more aftershocks around 2.0 like we're having and people are feeling those. >> thank you. coming up, we have often imagined an earthquake warning system? well, there are some scientists who think they may have found it in outer space. there are 2.5 million community college students in california but don't all stay there and many who drop out take your money with them. the financial aid doesn't have to be a bad bet for taxpayers. linda yee on how some are working to improve the odds. linda? >> reporter: elizabeth, in the past five years, more than $480 million in student aid went to community college students who simply dropped out. but educators would say no matter how much money is spent on financial aid, it's still an investment in someone's future and that dropout rate is not the student's fault but the
6:05 pm
community college system asphalt. new studies reveal a fourth of financial aid students in bay area community colleges don't make it past the first year. san francisco city college student victoria jones says financial aid is her lifeline. she also works part time while taking a full load of classes. but she knows one reason for the dropout rate. abuse among some students. >> some people even brag about yeah, i'm going to go to school, get my financial aid check and then they don't come back. >> it may be -- you know, maybe they do that but one semester at most. >> reporter: the city college dean oversees the financial eighth aid service. he says students caught cashing in the check and then dropping out get disqualified but says a bigger reason for the dropouts is it's hard to get in some required courses. one fix? they now give high school grads priority registration. >> in the past, they had to wait until everybody else got
6:06 pm
registered. and they couldn't get the classes that needed, for example, the english and math. and they ended up dropping from school because they got disappointed they doesn't get the class they needed. >> reporter: educators say there's even a bigger reason why financial aid students quit. >> it's life. it's -- it's trying to be a full-time worker while you're a part-time student and not being able to get enough traction between the two. >> reporter: the doctor is a member of the state chancellors student task force which is looking for ways to make repairs in the community college system and keep the students enrolled. >> standards, in other words, agreed upon standards that keep kids from high school and community college faculty expect of students coming in. >> reporter: get them better prepared? >> in effect creating that basis for better preparation so when students come in. >> reporter: and they also want to make sure that they identify problems that high school graduates may have before they get to college so they can work

6:13 pm
cell phone could be giving you cancer. >> i think there's some research that suggest that is it can do that. >> i guess there's a slim chance. but i always figure i drink so much diet pepsi that it's going to happen that way first. >> hi, bill. >> reporter: the evidence is not conclusive. and the world health organization says hundreds of scientific articles done need further study also reporting there has been no link established. >> this question is still open. and it's very possible that in 10 years, we could be in a different place. >> reporter: which is why renee sharpe of the environmental working group backs the san francisco law forcing cell phone stores to place a warning on the wall and literature with a purchase explaining how to limit potential harm from your cell. a judge asked the city to postpone next week's implementation until he
6:14 pm
decides. the industry says its first amendment rights are violated. why is this a first amendment case? >> the first amendment has basic protections in it where you can't force people to say things that they don't believe unless there's a compelling public interest. >> reporter: they say the world health -- >> we apologiz for that. obviously, some technical difficulties with the individual glow that story. we'll try to get you that before the end of the newscast. pg&e's problems with the natural gas pipelines could go back about 7 decades. state regulators say there are documents that show the utility installed salvaged or junk transmission pipe in the 1940s and '50s. the findings are raising concern about more undetected problems like the one that caused the deadly explosion and fire in san bruno last year. today we commemorate one of the biggest disasters to hit the bay area. the oakland hills fire. thousands of homes lost, more than two dozen people killed. ken bastida back in the hills 20 years later with a look at what has changed. >> reporter: allen, i'm here in
6:15 pm
the hiller highlands neighborhood and, you know, if i was standing here 20 years ago tonight, it would not be a good situation. the ambient air temperature was 1800 degrees hot enough to melt asphalt. 3500 homes would be in the process of either burning down or already down to ashes. and 25 people would not live to see the sun come up. this firestorm was easily one of the worst disasters in bay area history. it has been called the most devastating urban wildfire in u.s. history. >> i'm looking at, you know, full homes fire burning up close everything getting preheated and bursting into flame all at the same time. >> reporter: the oakland fire chief mark hoffman a lieutenant back in 1991 says it was a deadly combination of high winds, low humidity, and heavy fuel load that put him and his men in for the fight of their lives on the ground.
6:16 pm

6:17 pm
out stump over there. here's what acacia avenue and broadway terrace looked like after the fire. and here's what that same street looks like today. >> the 20th anniversary is giving people time to reflect those who actually lived through the fire and the newcomers and over half the people in the hills were not here during the fire well over half and it gives them a chance to become aware or oriented to the fact that they are living in an area where there is an ever-present danger. >> reporter: yeah, things have changed just a little bit here. obviously the vegetation, they tried to keep a handle on although driving around you'll find eucalyptus trees and redwoods and even the monterey pines at 30 feet or more already. they have grown back up in the last 20 years. roofs now you have to have a fire resistant roof out here. and the materials on your house have to be able to withstand what they call the one hour rule it. has to be able to take direct fire for at least an hour.
6:18 pm
they have also changed fire hydrants. now other jurisdiction can come in if there is a mutual aid situation. with will it burn again? the fire chief says absolutely it will. only maybe next time it won't be as bad as it was 20 years ago. >> we sure hope not. ken, i'm just thinking what the fire chief said about half the people living there were there and experienced the fire. from the folks you talked to, just wondering, you know, where did they get to the point where they can get a good night's sleep and worry about it not happening again? >> that was one of the questions i asked the home owner there. he told me he doesn't worry about it anymore. the year after the fire every time there was a smoke plume or something, he said, he would jump in his car and go take a look. and he says the fire response here is a lot faster now. oakland fire department has built a fire station in the hills to handle anything that does come up. and people here are aware but you can't live your life scared. and i tell you what you're up
6:19 pm
here 10 minutes and you look at the view, unbelievable. you know why they're up here. >> it's gorgeous. exactly. ken bastida, thank you. roberta is here for a check of your forecast. now, roberta you're saying that that weather associated with some high fire danger could be coming back to the bay area. >> the offshore flow kicks in friday night through the weekend but it is a slight offshore flow that will predominantly affect our inland areas not so much the coast. but when you get that lower humidity and the gusty winds, then you elevate that opportunity for fire danger. now, right now, we are looking at temperatures into the 70s and 60s across the santa clara valley. it's now 70 degrees in gilroy. otherwise, as we head towards the central bay and east bay temperatures into the 70s there, pleasanton now at 74 degrees after a high temperature today of 76. and now the central bay san francisco, a high of only 61, currently 60. and that is it looks like in san francisco right now. low clouds and fog still to the west of the golden gate bridge.
6:20 pm
it will be pushing back into the bank. the clouds offshore roughly 1600 feet deep remaining about that deep in the overnight hours so it will be cloudy everywhere as our lows dip into the 50s. the clouds are promised to move at least 60 miles inland but retreat a little bit faster than today. so even the coastal areas which were clammy and cool you will bask in some sunshine so we are going to bump up your temperatures for friday. looks like 63 degrees in half moon bay after a high today of only 61 degrees. santa clara in the mid-70s. northwest winds 10 to 20 miles per hour. pretty breezy late day as our highs top off to 78 degrees. 60 in stinson beach. i want you to take a look at this because once the clouds dissipate tomorrow no clouds in the sky all the way through the end of the workweek next weekend of the month actually. and again that potential for high fire danger kicks in on monday. we'll talk more about that next time around. allen and elizabeth? >> thank you.
6:21 pm
a foul mess that snarled traffic for hours. how chickens wound up all over a local freeway. >> plus, we have been staring at the outside of it for months. now a first look inside the bay area's newest tunnel. that's in two minutes. ,, ,,,,
6:22 pm
i've got nothing against these do-it-yourself steam-cleaning enthusiasts. it's good for the customer to get to know their own carpet. and spending the day moving furniture and lugging around a hot water extraction unit can be a rush! i know. that's why i'm carpet for life. but look, if things get out of hand, and the place starts smelling like wet gym sock, there's no shame in calling a professional. i respect you for trying. ♪call 1-800-steemer.

6:25 pm
marina. this phase of the futuristic- looking tunnel opens to traffic in a few months. >> that we have made so much progress on the first of our new bridges. >> reporter: this is a new section of doyle drive replacing that one there's been there since the '30s. this is the battery tum. this is the road they are already working on scheduled to be opened in early 2012 that's just a few months from now. >> currently traffic is on the old bridge. so we have to build a new bridge, switch traffic on the new bridge then we tear down the old one. >> reporter: the new design comes are with a view and is a benefit for people even if they don't drive. the project includes green space from park presidio to crissy field. >> it was a big concrete bridge that's kind of in the way. it's not very sightly. and so when you take it down, you open up the view and it is true to the design. i have talked to one person working in the substation. they said it's come out to the inch. >> reporter: and evolving by the day. in san francisco, patrick
6:26 pm
sedillo, cbs 5. the tunnel is one of four that will see completion in 2015 if everything stays on schedule. of course, the jolt caught everybody by surprise today. but what if there were a way to predict the next big earthquake? a lot of researchers are using it today to detect small movements. >> why scientist think they can spot early warning signs in outer space. the dark shadow of tyranny has been lifted. >> new details about muammar qaddafi's final moments. the golden gun where he was hiding and his last words. like a scene from tv. the elite new crime-fighting unit to catch some of the bay area's most dangerous criminals. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

[ yelling ] >> reporter: the quake in japan was so strong, scientists are studying the gravity field before and after the quake to see how it might have deformed the earth there. but another researcher went looking for warning signs that happened before the shaking. he says he has found one. the man with the department of natural history science at hokkaido university looked at
6:31 pm
data from the japanese gps network. he claims to see what might be a predicter to the fifth most powerful quake ever recorded an increase in the total electron content in the ionosphere about 40 minutes from gps systems. darcy is a research geophysicist with the usgs. >> a lot of researchers are using it today to detect small missouri deformation of the earth's crust and small movements. >> reporter: while researchers are using the gps information, she says the study conducted in japan should not be taken as proof that quakes can be predicted. she says the researchers' study of the japan quake along with a 8.8 shaker in chile last year and a 9.2 temblor in sumatra in 2004 did not take into account many of the variables that could affect gps data. >> there's a lot of unknowns there so what the anomalous signals that the researchers
6:32 pm
are showing here, uhm, don't necessarily take into account the changes in the satellites or space weather for that matter. >> reporter: the ionosphere at 60 to 600 miles above the earth's surface is used to bounce radio signals for long distance communication and we have long known solar flares candice can disrupt those signals. >> changes in radiation in the sun can cause changes in the content of the charges particles in the ions sphere. >> reporter: these researchers studied huge earthquakes all above 9.0. >> these are 1,000 times larger than your average earthquake that happens that may happen in the bay area on the san andreas fault. >> reporter: does this study move us any closer to predicting a major quake? it's promising and intriguing but much more thorough analysis must be done before we can say whether this is a promising
6:33 pm
technique or not. >> despite today's quake on the hayward fault zone, many consider that faulted overdue for a major earthquake of 7.0 or greater. if you have a story idea log on to click "connect" and scroll down to "closer look" and send me an email. the final words of muammar qaddafi. don't kill me. don't kill my sons. but tonight, the ousted dictator who ruled libya for more than 4 decades with an iron fist is dead. tara mergener shows us the final moments of qaddafi's life. >> reporter: bloody images on al-jazeera tv show muammar qaddafi captured alive. during a violent clash in his hometown of sirte, rebels pushed the former dictator against a truck. he may have been trying to flee in a convoy when nato plane struck from above. rebels took videos and photographs after they killed qaddafi to prove he is dead. fighters fired shots into the air. as people celebrated on the streets of tripoli to mark the end of 42 years of tyranny.

6:35 pm
washington. qaddafi was armed with a golden pistol when he was killed. rebels held his into the air like a trophy. the former dictator apparently had a fascination with golden guns. rebels found several similar weapons when they raided his compound in august. it is very much like a tv crime show. today san francisco police opened an elite new crime- fighting unit, the special victims unit. mayor lee joining the police chief greg suhr for today's unveiling. the svu will bring together investigative units to help victims of domestic violence as well as child and elder abuse. it's the first unit of its kind in the city. >> knowing in that we have a dwindling force but also increased amount of demands from our communities, we needed to do smarter things and so it makes so much sense that this innovative idea of bringing the various investigative units under the same space under the same command can offer us even
6:36 pm
more resources put together. >> in addition to domestic violence, the special victims unit will also be responsible for investigating human trafficking, missing persons and financial crimes. other bay area headlines. police say they have caught the gunman responsible for a triple murder in san leandro earlier this month. the shooting happened outside a tattoo party in a warehouse. witnesses say the gunman opened fire in the parking lot killing three people including a 16- year-old girl. three others were hurt. police have not named the suspect. responding to widespread criticism, bart is looking to establish an official policy on when it will shut down cell phone service in bart stations. under the proposal before the board of directors, the transit agency will shut down service only in times of extraordinary 9/11 type events. the issue comes up at a board meeting next week. a heartless scheme. the scammers allegedly using the most horrible thing that could happen to a family to
